Negotiating With A Loaded Gun (Latin Quarter)

He vaults the counter with a dancer's grace The time for counting-up has just begun They read a history within his face Negotiating with a loaded gun The spring-board quivers and the colour's run Negotiating with a loaded gun The roe-buck scatter and the deed is done Negotiating with a loaded gun A radar trace beneath the Polar ice Can flare as bright as an exploding sun Captain's order, "You don't think twice" Negotiating with a loaded gun The spring-board quivers and the colour's run Negotiating with a loaded gun The roe-buck scatter and the deed is done Negotiating with a loaded gun You need to make the time, to make you play Between the echo and the ricohet You need to wait until the chamber spins This dice is loaded and nobody wins I thought your hexagrams were all re-cast I thought your entrance only set to stun No safety-curtain to contain the blast Negotiating with a loaded gun
